Book Summary:

I am going crazy, I thought. I need to sleep, but I can't. This is awful. This is the worst feeling in the world. Is that John? Did I just hear John? Hypersensitive to every sound in the house, I wasn't sure if I was truly hearing John or simply hearing other noises. He had been crying for so long throughout the day, it was as if the memory of the cry were still ringing in my ears, even if he wasn't crying at that moment. I didn't want to hear any noises from within the house, the house that had begun to feel as small and constricting as a shoebox. Ana Clare Rouds, author of the gripping memoir Dancing On the Edge of Sanity, shares her painfully honest journey through the dark labyrinth of postpartum depression and anxiety. Readers will find a friend in Rouds as they explore this engaging tale of early motherhood, maternal mental health and recovery. Rouds has wonderful friends, a supportive family, and a healthy newborn boy. Everything around her indicates that life should be just about perfect. However, soon after the birth of her son, Rouds begins to experience severe panic attacks, anxiety, and obsessive thoughts. These rarely discussed symptoms of a postpartum mood disorder lead her to seek help at her local hospital's emergency room, where her symptoms are grossly misunderstood. While some information about postpartum mood and anxiety disorders has become more available to new mothers, and to those who are in the position of supporting their loved ones who may be affected by it, each case of this disorder can showcase vastly different symptoms. Sleep deprived, insecure about her mothering skills, and troubled by her increasingly intrusive obsessive thoughts, Rouds struggles to find answers about her condition. As her descent into depression, anxiety, and confusion intensifies, Rouds must fight to regain the life she once had. Told with Rouds' trademark warmth and humor, the story explores the complexities of early motherhood while also revealing the utter lack of understanding about, and resources for, the variety of postpartum mood disorders that exist. Through the help of her family and friends, anti-depressants, and outside resources, she is once again able to bring herself back from the edge of sanity. Dancing On the Edge of Sanity is a must read for anyone who has experienced, or who knows someone who has experienced, the crushing effects of postpartum depression, anxiety or a related illness. As knowledge about this condition increases, it is important to realize that not all postpartum mood disorders are alike. Rouds authentic memoir is an important contribution towards understanding this vital area of women's health, an area that is often clouded in much unnecessary misinterpretation. This heartfelt, riveting memoir is ultimately one of hope, an uplifting tale of a mother's love that should not be missed. "This memoir is a poignant narrative of the 'lived experience' of postpartum obsessive-compulsive disorder. It speaks to the resilient soul of its author and to the intense need for continuous education for healthcare providers and women to the unique aspects of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Continuing to raise the level of awareness will hopefully let pregnant and postpartum women know that they 'are not alone.'" -Jeanne Watson Driscoll "Rouds raises awareness by sharing her very intimate journey with postpartum depression and anxiety. This book is an important reminder that misinformed healthcare practitioners and family members alike can interfere with the recovery process. This is why it is vital that good, accurate information about perinatal mood disorders is available. Rouds brings attention to this important issue." -Karen Kleiman "In her debut memoir, Rouds tells the story of her struggle with postpartum mood disorder...The strength of Rouds' account is her straightforward, honest voice...This energetic memoir has useful knowledge at its heart." -Kirkus Review

Book Summary:

What is the distinction between reality and fiction? Sanity and insanity? These are the questions that twin siblings Jasmin and Herby find themselves attempting to answer. Jasmin writes in an attempt to understand what is true. She struggles to maintain separation between her scrambled memories and her grief stricken reality without losing herself in the process. Herby tries to answer most of the unanswered questions that Jasmin's letters raise. He also battles between his sanity and insanity in his efforts to gain the love and affection of his beloved sister. He will eliminate any boundaries that come between him and what his heart longs for regardless of the consequences. However, what ails the two most is what has brought them to the mental torment they suffer. Their less than normal childhoods certainly did not foster reputable adulthoods. What confines Jasmin to her white prison? Who are her daily noonday "friends" that visit her at the cusp of her reality leaning over her imagination? What motivates Herby to want to destroy all those that stand in his way of pursuing his only love? Will he accomplish all that his soul desperately tries to fulfill? With all these unanswered questions and more, it is no wonder why the two bear the mental torment to which they are submitted.

Book Summary:

In The Beginning, Jessica's marriage to handsome hotelier Julian Bothwell reads like a romance novel. However, Jessica's marital bliss soon begins to unravel as she realizes she has married not only into money, but mayhem, madness, and perhaps murder as well. Desperate to save her marriage and the life she has built for her young son, Jessica becomes the keeper of things she dare not say out loud, not even to her closest confidante and friend or her therapist. As she frantically careens from one stopgap measure to another, Jessica finds herself turning to a coping mechanism that, to her dismay, proves not only futile but also perilous. A combination of romance, intense suspense, and an examination of the darker side of human nature, Tap Dancing on Quicksand is not a book for the fainthearted. It examines issues that women have faced for centuries - loving too much, spousal and child abuse, alcoholism and drug addiction, family secrets, and dysfunction. It is a book about a woman for whom being in love becomes synonymous with being in terror. Tap Dancing on Quicksand will keep you guessing until the last page....

With help at age fifty-seven he got sober and has remained so for ten years. This book details Jeff’s career and how it and the people around him helped him survive. It is also his attempt to give hope to others who have had or who are still going through the kinds of abuse that he suffered. He wants this book to show them they are not victims. What happened to them is not their fault, and there is hope for them to have a long and fruitful life.

Her mother said she would learn everything the hard way. The choices she made would always lead her back to the emotionally unstable existence she had come from. Life experience begged her to take another road. With every bad choice, the road became tougher to travel. After falling in love with a contractor whom she came to realize was leading a double life, she was facing the edge of sanity. She could allow him to send her over, or she could face her fears. She discovered that what lives in the dark, grows in the dark. After warning her to stay out of his business and to stop investigating him, he confessed, This is what I do; I become a regular in many bars. I shmoo people, I buy drinks, dinner, whatever it takes and before you know it; someone has a job for me. She did not know however, they were all women. He used their emotions against them. It is not certain how far back Zach realized his powers. He grew up in an affluent town. He began to observe his friends, attempting to absorb just what made them rich. With his looks, charm and the affluent mannerisms he had acquired, he discovered he could scam his way through life. He would set his trap, becoming indispensable, vanish, and wait. His prey was wealthy female developers. He had the patience of a saint. While waiting to snare one, he would do the same with another. They began to chase him. He was now in control, and the games began. Sometimes it did not work, while other times; it worked too well. Then he would juggle. He always had Desiree to come home to. They were all a part of his game and yes, he was dancing. She could not stop him and she could not fix him. She found out on her own, the hard way.
